Got my NW BLF GT70 ordered with discount.
My workaround to get my order in with discount.
- followed the email link
- logged into my account
- did a search for blf gt70
- clicked on blf gt70
- choosed NW as my LED
- NONE on Battery option
- added Lens cover accsessory
- ADDED to Cart
- clicked on secure checkout
- added Coupon Code from Email
- Clicked on Determine Order tab
- completed purchase with PayPal
- final price fot GT70 and Lens cover $225.00

I had to create two separate orders for conversion kits in order to get the dicount for each.

I created an account prior to ordering.
got email confirmation for my orders

/\…. Nice directions my friend. That will help many people ‘IF’ they take time to read it. . Thumbs Up
………

Your exactly right about the Conversion Kits & Battery Carriers too.

Each must be purchased separately to receive the proper discount.

I emailed ‘Leo @ Lumintop’ about this issue & he confirmed the above info.
……

Oh yeah…. my orders have all been placed & waiting to be shipped in the fairly near future. (I hope…. Big Smile . Wink )

The order process is extremely simple if one takes their time & follows the simple directions. Wink

Well done Lumintop!!! Beer

I’m glad you guys are figuring it out. I’m just waking up and see the codes are being sent.

I would not be too worried about the website glitching or saying sold out. You might try on a different browser or computer. They just now added it to the website, so I’m sure Lumintop will get it sorted soon.

Just placed my order for a NW BLF GT70 and got the discount from coupon.

The NW link showed them sold out, even thought page says "500 items available".

I followed the previous poster's suggestion to use the CW link and choose NW. It worked. thanks!

So is the conversion kit drop in, or is there soldering involved?

From post #2:

It will have all the parts you need to convert your existing BLF GT to a Giggle Monster, Including

12v drop in replacement DTP copper MCPCB
XHP70.2 LED reflowed to the mcpcb
Centering ring
12V Texas Avenger V2 driver

To install the kit you will need to be able to open your GT first (easier said then done in some cases), un-solder 2 wires and then solder 2 more wires to the new mcpcb. When soldering to the mcpcb you will need to turn your iron as hot as it will go in order to get the solder to stick, soldering to mcpcb’s can be difficult depending on the quality of your iron. Soldering is required to install this kit, you have been warned.

Notice: The GT head is VERY VERY tight, make sure you can open your light before ordering. Many people report not being to open their light without damage.

QUESTIONS:


1) When will we see a demonstration of the comparison between the CW and NW?


2) I submitted my interest in the NW. Can I change my mind and order the CW instead?


 


thanks in advance.



1. First we need one person to buy both, then recieve them, then to take and post pictures. So if this happens, we might see it in 2 weeks maybe?

2. Sure, you can buy whichever one you want. The CW are shipping now, NW in a week I think.

Go ahead and try. I’m not sure if they changed it. Maybe someone here can confirm if it’s a new code or the old.

Ordered NW BLF GT70, NW conversion kit, and a set of battery carriers. MANY thanks to all of those involved especially Mr. Texas Ace for all of his time getting Lumintop to sell the conversion kits.

I hope that everyone remembers that these new battery carriers require unprotected button top cells. I modified the first couple of posts a couple days ago to reflect this new development.

The website still says protected cells are recommended, but this is incorrect.

With my BLT GT70 order, I selected the 8 batteries Lumintop had offered on the BLT GT70 order page. I'm assuming these are the correct batteries.

Just ordered a NW conversion kit yay!!! Had to pay 10$ shipping fees unfortunately. Total order 65$. The waiting begins.

There’s no replacement for displacement.

Did you try typing it in? Sometimes copy and paste does not work. You can also try a different Web browser.

Hi,
I registered interest for 2 cell carriers, but not for the conversion kit.
With the cell carriers not being available, can I use the conversion kit GB instead?

Ok im a bit confused.

The way it looks on the order page for the conversion kit, it seems to suggest the updated battery carriers are included with the kit.

Is this true?

Or do i need to order the carriers in a separate order and THEN the kit in a separate order ?

Do a seperate order for each item. Carriers are not (and never were) part of the Conversion Kits.

Then why do it say it…?

Yep… it does take a bit of ‘reading between the lines’ to decipher it. Big Smile

Just keep in mind the blf gt is very difficult to open and shaving the xhp70.2 will result in green tint..

I ordered only the conversion kit because the coupon does not work with the cell carriers, not even in separate orders.

When the cell carriers are at the offered price I will buy them.

They appear to be selling 3 different items on this one page.

1. CW conversion kit
2. NW conversion kit
3. Carriers x 2

Hmmmm…. that is strange. It worked for me. The Code knocked $20 off the price of the carriers….. making them $28 for a set of two.

Oh yeah, it seems they are just sold in pairs… no singles.

I think TA will need to ask them why the coupon is not working for the carriers. Lumintop may not even be aware of the problem. It seems clearing cookies got it working.

It seems they have several glitches in their website. It might take a day or so for them to get it all working smoothly.
